Mercedes-Benz of Long Beach Confirms, Mercedes-Benz First Teen Driving School To Open In Los Angeles
May 2, 2011 – Signal Hill, Calif.- Mercedes-Benz of Long Beach confirms, Mercedes-Benz is opening the company’s first Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy in Los Angeles in October 2011, offering a fully integrated driver’s education program and school that incorporates online, classroom and behind-the-wheel training for Los Angeles-area teens.
Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy aims to be the only car manufacturer to offer a California DMV-approved program, fully integrated with the Graduated Driver Licensing framework. The goal of the Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy is to prepare students for today’s driving environment by going beyond basic car control skills and rote learning of traffic rules.
“The program will utilize multiple teaching techniques and delivery methods ranging from online to interactive learning and behind-the-wheel training,” said Bob Milner, General Manager of Mercedes-Benz of Long Beach. “It’s a great program for our youth and community.”
The program will incorporate approaches such as digital animation to visualize road hazards in an online program, problem-solving exercises in the classroom, and hands-on experience of risky situations and in-car coaching techniques based on questioning rather than instruction. This approach is combined with consistent feedback from driving coaches to parents, which aims to assist them in planning their supervised driving practice. The overall collective curriculum aims to benefit and appeal to the vast spectrum of learning-styles, which will ensure greater engagement, and absorption of skills and knowledge.
The Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy is unveiling details for its teen driving school at the annual California State PTA Convention, where approximately 2,500 California PTA members are attending from April 28 – May 1, 2011 in Long Beach, CA.
